MIDLAND, Mich. – HDA Truck Pride and Northwood University are pleased to announce Anthony R. Lewis
as the 2017-18 recipient of the Heavy Duty America Fund Memorial Endowed Scholarship. The soughtafter

industry, Pete Bley and Jim Burke, Sr. The annual award is directed to a Northwood University student
enrolled in the dedicated Automotive Aftermarket program.
“Selecting Anthony for this prestigious scholarship was a simple decision. His enthusiasm for the industry
echoes that of the gentlemen for whom the award was established”, said Don Reimondo, President and
CEO of HDA Truck Pride (formerly HD America), and fellow Northwood Alum. “He personifies the ideals of
this award with his work ethic and determination to succeed in the heavy duty aftermarket. We’re

A junior from Commerce Township, Michigan, Lewis is enrolled in the university’s Automotive Aftermarket
Management program at its Midland campus. He has been active in Northwood University’s International
